“Pure Comfort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

First time in Tahoe and it couldn't have been better. The location was perfect. Close enough to great restaurants, hiking, sight seeing, casinos and all water activities. We spent three wonderful nights here and can't wait to go back! Marty is a wonderful host. The food was amazing along with the view. The bed was the most comfortable bed ever! We stayed in Opa's room on the 2nd floor. We enjoyed the hot tub and the kayaks. The room was always stocked with wonderful Tahoe water and treats in the afternoon. We spent an wonderful day on Marty's boat for a lunchtime cruise around the lake. He is so informative and the lake is absolutely amazing. When we anchored for lunch, he said we could take a swim if we wanted. All I could manage to get into the water was my feet. The water was so cold!! There was one brave soul who dove right in though. One morning before breakfast, we took the kayaks out and it was truly a magical experience. I highly recommend sacrificing your sleep to do this! This is one place that you do not want to miss.

Above and beyond the best place to stay in Tahoe. Not only do you have a private beach, Marty is just wonderful. He truly cares about your overall experience from your breakfast, afternoon wine/appetizers, and dinner reservations. We have stayed at the Shore House several times and try to stay in a different room each time. The morning breakfast is just awesome! During our last visit, we got couples massages with a view of the lake, just amazing! Best Location and service in Tahoe!

Room Tip: Any room, but we love the Pine Room, Opa's Room, and the studio

My boyfriend booked a stay for us at The Shore House as a belated Valentine's gift. As soon as we arrived, Marty was so accommodating and friendly and the view of the lake is unbeatable. Complimentary glasses of wine and homemade cookies awaited us! We stayed in the Art Studio and it was the definition of cozy. Perfect for a romantic weekend. The bed was so comfy and the dual shower heads were great! And everything was spotless. Breakfast by the fire the next morning was delicious with the first course of cinnamon bananas and strawberries with whipped cream and the main dish of a loaded omelette and biscuits. After breakfast, Marty made sure we had a map with all of the activities that he recommended clearly labeled. This was a very special experience and I couldn't have asked for a better Valentines Day surprise! I highly recommend The Shore House to everyone!

Above and beyond guest service. The food was world class. Marty is a great host who cares about your experience. Its fun to meet with other guests in a great environment. The location cannot be beat. We will definitely try our hardest to return to the Shore House when we return to Lake Tahoe.

Visited with my 94 year old dad and we stayed in "the studio" which is handicap accessible. Every possible amenity was provided including a little flashlight at the bedside. Pine furnishings are beautiful and views of the lake superb. Next time will use the hot tub. Breakfast was terrific and Marty was an excellent host. Would highly recommend the shore house.

If I had a grandmother waiting for me in a delux lake side cottage in Lake Tahoe, it couldn't have been a more warm, memorable and inviting atmosphere. From the perfect decorations in the rooms, the daily fresh cookies in a jar in each room, the beautifully adorned and maintained cabin rooms, the 5 star amenities, lotions and extras to the custom breakfasts that look like your plate is a masterpiece of art from some exotic restaurant....this place is incredible for the price!!! I mean you have to be a miserable wretch of a person to not LOVE this place!!! What else could you possible want in a bed and breakfast??? Each day there started on a cloud, warmed up in the jicuzzi and ended in the stars! We even had clouds on the ceiling of our room!!! Thanks, for a perfect get away! Charles and Lanea

Room Tip: Tell Marty what you're there for and he'll get you the right room.

My girlfriend and I booked this B&B not knowing what to expect. We arrived and were welcomed with open arms! Wine, appetizers, board games, cards, and snacks all at our fingertips to watch an unreal sunset after a long day of skiing. The place is right on the water with a dock that you can walk out on. The room was perfect as well. We stayed in the Pine room which had a very comfortable king-sized bed, jacuzzi tub for two, two reading chairs, etc.

Breakfast the next morning hit the spot. All of the owners/staff are beyond friendly. I will be staying here again and again and again.

I recommend this place to the highest regard.
